Yet last year alone, countless numbers of Americans lost their life savings through investments that looked safe. In some cases, people lost both their jobs and their pensions when companies failed.So, is there a safe place to put your money? Analysts say yes, but it is essential to learn a handful facts first.For instance, real estate has long been referred to as a secure, tangible investment because it typically appreciates as time goes by. But most would-be investors are not real estate experts, and many of us do not have enough money to fund the buy of an investment property-let alone to fix up a run-down home. Nevertheless, there is another strategy. It is called cash flow investing and it enables people to benefit from secure and lucrative real estate investments without buying or selling properties.Put basically, a real estate cash flow note is a private mortgage created between two individuals instead of between a buyer and a bank. What many individuals do not know is that one in 13 American homes is sold this way. Much like banks, which purchase formerly created mortgages, private individuals can purchase cash flow notes to build returns of 20 percent or more. Heres how it works:Lets say I sold a house for $100,000 and my buyer had $50,000 to use as a down payment. I can draw up a contract that takes $50,000 down and finances the remaining $50,000 over 30 years. I now have a cash flow note that generates monthly payments of $299.78 each month secured by real estate.As a note holder, I have two options. I can take advantage of the monthly income and interest, or I can sell the note to another investor for instant cash. This is where you, as an investor, come in to make money. Lets say you are an investor with $35,000 to invest. I may not be willing to wait 30 years for my money, so I will sell you my $50,000 cash flow note for $35,000. Many investors find they can purchase notes at great prices only because the original note holder wants to cash out. Now you are receiving a steady monthly income of almost $300 and you are in a position to make a 30 percent come back on your investment-even before interest.Greatest of all, unlike stocks and bonds, your cash flow note investment is secured by real estate-one of the most solid investments on the planet.
